we need to redo all the work to build a brand new system. is not possible upgrade a 32bit system to a 64bit. actually i am tring to do this but RaspbianOS aftter some updates and indi packages not boot up. I am tring to resume a previous 64bit image and check all and add some others feataures that i made to the standard system.
I'm not speaking about DIY compiling of kstars for Raspbian 64bit, but about the future of the ready-to-go Astroberry distro. Any info about that? Is there some ongoing work on that, or Astroberry will stop here?
I have been able to install Raspbian 64bit (bullseye); I then added astroberry repo.
That way I was able to install PHD2 and kStars (bleeding: 3.6.0) which are in the astroberry repo.
At first, kStars crashed, but following a trick I found in a german forum in which they where discussing this installation (www.indilib.org/forum/astroberry/12390-6...rry/reply/86978.html), I removed kstars-bleeding, installed the standard kStars in raspbian, started it with a simulator profile, and then installed again kstars-bleeding - it worked!
Anyway, I'm still configuring the system but it seems to work, and without compiling a thing.
I don't know whether the packages are being built right now, the 3.6,0 64bit version I got installed corresponds to Build: 2022-08-27T18:31:54Z

So I copied the ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/kstars directory from my MacBook to ~/.local/share/kstars on the Raspberry Pi and now it's working.

But strace shows:
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/home/XXXXX/.local/share/kstars/asteroids.dat", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
futex(0x7fbb7e3234, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 2147483647) = 0
So indeed, at least the ~/.local/share/kstars/asteroids.dat is missing. Is there a dependency missing? And why ~/.local?
OK, other files are probed in multiple locations and finally found in /usr/share/kstars. And I even found an asteroids.dat there.
Well, "cp /usr/share/kstars/asteroids.dat .local/share/kstars/" also does the trick.
